Nail-biting, though a bit "safe"

"Listen up, we have been boarded by armed pirates. If they find you, remember, you know this ship, they don't. Stick together and we'll be alright. Good luck." Director Paul Greengrass' first motion picture in a number of years, 2013's Captain Phillips finds the seasoned filmmaker back in familiar territory, utilising his intense documentary-style approach to tell the true story of the first pira... read more

A very good movie

Even though Paul Greengrass eventually became famous thanks to the Bourne franchise, I actually always preferred his very realistic thrillers based on some historical events ('United 93' and 'Bloody Sunday') and he was coming up this time with something similar. There was one slight difference though. Indeed, with this movie, we were not dealing with some real historical event though, even if the ... read more

Grips you tight right from the opening frame.

Tom Hanks has the potential to be a game changer in any film he is in. During Captain Phillips, he not only elevates his own game but he helps become part of a larger picture one that is focused on everyone involved.

Captain Phillips is a multi-layered examination of the 2009 hijacking of the U.S. container ship Maersk Alabama by a crew of Somali pirates. Through director Paul Greengrass's distinctive lens, it is simultaneously a pulse-pounding thriller and a complex portrait of the myriad effects of globalization.

A tense fight for survival

“Although it was very positively reviewed and Tom Hanks and Paul Greengrass have done some great films in their respective careers, there was the uncertainty as to whether 'Captain Phillips' would be my cup of tea.The good news is it very much was. Although it does stray from the facts quite a bit, 'Captain Phillips' takes a remarkable and harrowing true story and tells it in a way that's utterly gripping and full of tension and emotion. It won't be for all taste-buds, especially for those who don't like shaky cam, but it is very easy to see why 'Captain Phillips' was and still is received so positively. It's not quite a masterpiece or flawless, it does go on a little longer than necessary which occasionally bogs down the pacing (15-20 minutes shorter would have made a difference) and, alth” read more

""Captain Phillips" tells us the story about Richard Phillips (Tom Hanks), merchant mariner of the MV Maersk Alabama, who is ordered to transport from Oman to Kenya. During his duty, his vessel gets hijacked by a band of Somalian pirates, led by Abduwali Muse (Barkhad Abdi), and Phillips is taken hostage for five days. The rest of the film is Phillips trying to survive with the Somalis while the DEVGRU picks up the signal and negotiates with the pirates in the lifeboat. Obviously, "Captain Philli"
